Welcome to Neesons #3 - Realtime Captioning/CART

In this third instalment of Neesons' "state of the nation 2017" video series, realtime captioning/CART is highlighted.

Like so many things, realtime captioning/CART (Computer Access Realtime Reporting) has really progressed in the last 20+ years.  When Neesons first started providing realtime captioning, using an LCD projector with enhanced fonts was a really big deal.  There was little that could be changed back in those days, so if you wanted captioning in a room, you needed a good front seat!

Fast forward to today's platform, where technology has significantly impacted how our CART services are provided.  Whether on a large screen like the Jumbotron at the Rogers Centre, or on a client's iPad or handheld device, streaming realtime captioning for communication access has never been easier or more available in almost any location.

What's stayed the same is the service provider - the highly skilled shorthand reporter, who uses a shorthand machine, specialized software combined with very fast fingers and an excellent dictionary to take the spoken word and translate it into text, as fast as it is said.
